What you need to know when adopting an animal from Macedonia to the UK


Please read the process and review the new cost breakdown as per the updated regulations in the UK after Brexit.

  1. After choosing a dog you like, please go ahead and fill out an application: https://www.animalloversstrumica.com/adoption…/
    (Only one application needs to be completed, and before applying, please ensure that your entire family has decided that you are okay with meeting the dog before adopting it only over a video call. Our dogs are located in Macedonia and can only travel to the UK once they have found their forever homes.)
  2. After reviewing the applications, we will decide if you are a good fit for the dog you applied for. In that case, someone from our team will contact you over e-mail in 2-5 days to schedule a video call. If we didn’t contact you, that doesn’t mean you are not a suitable adopter for any other dog. So do not hesitate to get in touch with us again. We can always arrange a call to chat more. Our e-mail is [email protected].
  3. We will take just a little from your time, quickly getting to know each other. You can also meet the dog over cam.
  4. After the phone call, if successful, you will receive a copy of the adoption agreement. We will require a reservation fee of £100 as many people have the habit of canceling last minute (do not worry, we will withdraw this amount from the total cost listed below in the table).
  5. Full Payment is required a few days before travel so we can pay timely for documents and transport on your behalf.
  6. After the dogs are picked up from N.Macedonia, we will create a group chat with all rescues, adopters, and the driver. That way, you will receive regular updates on where they are.

If you have additional questions about the adoption process, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
